The greatest thriller/crime-drama/mystery/suspense movie ever! One of the greatest movies ever made. A classic for all generations to behold. Anthony Hopkins has one of the greatest screen performances ever! Fantastically lead by Jodie Foster and amazingly supported by Ted Levine. Smart, creepy, and terrific.

A mesmerizing thriller that will grip audiences from first scene to last. Full Review

A smart, restrained entertainment, it doesn't splash around in blood and hysteria. It doesn't have to. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Chilling and creepy, and there's no denying that the most celebrated aspect of the film -- the Clarice/Hannibal connection -- could not have been accomplished with greater skill. Full Review

The interplay between Starling and Lector as they share an indefinable, dark understanding gives the film its unforgettable and unsettling power. [14 February 1991, Daily Notebook, p.E1] Full Review

The superbly crafted suspense thriller…slams you like a sudden blast of bone-chilling, pulse-pounding terror. Full Review
